Ficiligno is Baglio di Pianetto’s first white wine, a blend of indigenous grape varietal Insolia and Viognier, of French origins. Persistent and intense, Ficiligno takes its name from a local stone streaked with siliceous, a characteristic element of the landscape. This mineral soil gives extra freshness to white wine.
